Abstract

Over the last few years, subclavian artery pseudoaneurysm (SAP) has been a more and more frequent cause of patients’ hospitalization and not only in surgical wards. These aneurysms appear as a result of trauma, especially by means of transport. The great variety of clinical symptoms sometimes cause diagnostic problems and demand the use of different methods of diagnostic imaging. In this article, we present the etiology and clinical symptoms as well as the modern methods of diagnostics and treatment of these cases.
